The average American woman uses almost 17,000 tampons in her life! Tampons are known to contribute to Toxic Shock Syndrome. Menstrual pads are loaded with chemicals - in fact, pad manufacturers are not even required to list all the chemicals! Our customers rave about these! Instead of traditional single use menstrual pads, make a switch to Organic Bamboo reusable pads. This pack of 10 pads in a variety of fabric designs offers protection for the heavy flows, for overnight and when you need extra security. They are 7 inches at the widest and 13 inches long, providing exceptional coverage.
